From ‘The Q’ to Monday Qualifier: TPC Myrtle Beach Prepares for Myrtle Beach Classic

The inaugural Myrtle Beach Classic will be played at Dunes Golf & Beach Club, but in the run up to the event, all the action will occur at TPC Myrtle Beach.

TPC will be hosting the PGA Tour’s Monday Qualifier on May 6, filling the final spots in the Myrtle Beach Classic field. The traditional qualifier will come on the heels of TPC hosting “The Q at Myrtle Beach,” a first of its kind event pitting eight YouTube creators against eight aspiring PGA TOUR players in an 18-hole shootout to earn a sponsor’s exemption into Myrtle Beach’s first TOUR event.

Stretching to 7,000 yards, the Tom Fazio-Lanny Wadkins design, which has previously hosted a Senior PGA Tour Championship, was built to test the game’s best players. The par 72 layout demands a combination of power and precision.

Players must advance through a pre-qualifier to earn a spot in the Monday Qualifier, or gain direct access based on various merit-based categories. Corey Conners won the 2019 Valero Texas Open as a Monday qualifier, the most recent to accomplish the feat on TOUR.

Monday Qualifying fields typically consist of 50 to 125 players.TPC Myrtle Beach 17th

The event is open to spectators free of charge.

TPC has been ranked among America’s 100 Greatest Public Courses by Golf Digest, and it has also hosted numerous high-level amateur events, including the NCAA Division I Myrtle Beach Regional.

The TPC Network was established to provide the ultimate host venues for TOUR events – with services and amenities that meet the highest standards of professional golf. Not only do the principles of excellence apply to the TOUR professionals experience, but they also apply to members and guests who enjoy the network of clubs.

Golfers hoping to earn a spot in the Myrtle Beach Classic will have to navigate a dramatic finish. The par 3 17th hole plays to a peninsula green flanked on three sides by water, and the tee shot to a large undulating green will be a nervy one down the stretch.

The Monday Qualifier could be decided by TPC’s most recognizable hole, the par 5 18th. The closer is reachable in two, but the green cants from right to left and there is water on the portside of the putting surface, providing substantial risk in exchange for the opportunity to make an eagle putt.

Monday Qualifying is a place for dreamers and whoever emerges from the field at TPC will enter the Myrtle Beach Classic with a deserved sense of belonging.
